9.16: 49ers Central- Inside Access
NFL Insider Matt Maiocco stops by the studio to detail the communication issues the 49ers offense has been experiencing.
My time for supporting honors its axis of that we will commit our insider Matt -- -- -- and Matt communication breakdown is. One of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs but it doesn't work so well for the 49ers what happened in Seattle. Well the lines of communication were obviously very bad. My Jimmy raise up in the Booth he relay is a signal delta Mike Johnson the quarterbacks coach who then. Passes it on to Alex Smith but those play calls are coming in so late and Mike Johnson had double opine and relaying the play called Alex Smith. They play clock was winding down repeatedly they had to burn timeouts delays of game it was a bad situation all the way around so question is now that they've identified the problem. How do they corrected the easiest solution is to take the middle man out of the equation. And put Jimmy -- the offensive. Coordinator of the guy who's calling the plays right there on the sideline to communicate directly with Alex Smith. Where is that -- worked and there were I know he likes to be up on the board to see things develop. Well it's not gonna it's not a perfect situation is right Jimmy ray wants to see the all 22 shot from being up there in the press box but at this point there's like no other solution. Well we'll see what they do -- and I've got to do something about a Matt thanks for the time thanks -- But you know it step. It's not the easiest solution is obvious solution to bring -- -- out of the press box and put him on the field but I I know it from announcing gained that 22 shot when you can see everything happened on the -- it's a lot different to being on the sideline -- you know one of the worst places to watch a game focus on the field with the spotlight so he's accustomed his entire career he's been up there is gonna change his perception of the game in real tick -- time and that's that's gonna make a difference for. Without a doubt they're certainly right you can't go up that you can go on silent and get the same same ethics -- to get when -- in the Booth double in the -- to get to see everything get to see what they're doing certain certain certain plays. So I think he's got him. Well -- that maybe they just -- Jason Michael back to be the guy that's relaying the play. -- hear something you have the -- us up and get him in any L or. I I keep saying it does Alex in in those situations call. Now well unfortunately be -- directed just talked out strictly without -- club under the NFL world side we got take a timeout but.
